According to sources, Perry exited the stage mid song, while the band continued to play their cover of Spirit’s “I Got a Line.” Footage taken at the gig shows Perry, sitting down, and struggling to perform, then ducking behind the amp stack. Various reports say the Aerosmith guitarist was rushed to the hospital. CBS New York says that he is in critical condition.
